Flood is the one of the most important natural hazard in India that occurs frequently due to some natural and anthropogenic factors. The delta region of Mahanadi river basin located in eastern part of India which is densely populated and major paddy growing region in the state of Orissa. Floods are frequent phenomena occurring in this part of the state during south-west monsoon, which causes severe damage of lives, property as well as agriculture. Remote sensing and GIS is an important tool for the flood mapping and its damage assessment. It provides timely assistance and save lives and property. The main objective of the present book is to give flood damage assessment and vulnerability analysis in part of Mahanadi Delta Basin, India. Using SAR data flood hazard map and flood depth the vulnerability of each element at risk is calculated. Finally the total risk has been identified. So, Remote sensing and GIS can be used for the risk communication among the people in our society for different strategic management and planning. This book meets the requirements of Under Graduate and Post Graduate courses in geography, earth science, environmental management and Disaster management.

Construction industry development depends on a deliberate effort to improve upon the performance of projects being implemented. This requires measuring the performance of key activities on projects using indicators that truly reflect the perspective of key stakeholders. Acknowledging the weaknesses in existing indicators, this book proposes a paradigm shift in both the existing measurement philosophy and the Approaches:(i) moving away from expecting “project autopsy reports” towards “project health reports” (ii) moving away from considering the outcomes of a project in terms of the success/failure dichotomy into project performance results in identifiable criteria and (iii) acknowledging the uniqueness of every project and the contingency factors which calls for contingency measures of assessment. A contingency-based assessment tool is designed which could be used to assess construction project performance throughout its life cycle, to identify the factors at play and which will provide the necessary information to facilitate project management decisions. The tool also documents all relevant events which are invaluable for learning and improvements on current and future projects

This research monograph assessed the physicochemical and bacteriological quality of the sampled drinking-water supply framework to detect the health risks that may arise thereof. It also employed a triangulated retrospective study to evaluate the health effect of the drinking-water supply consumption on the student population, and recommended effecient and sustainable management system to assure the short and long term health of the consumers. It revealed that 65% of the drinking-water supply sources were contaminated with faecal organisms. Thus are unfit for use in their native form. The understanding of water quality and its assessment, was poor among the sampled population. Indicating that majority of the consumers relied soly on physical appearance of drinking-water, in estimating domestic water quality. Students should be advised on simple steps that can be taken to rid water of contaminants. At the distribution level, it is recommended that the Framework for Safe Drinking-water (comprehensive risk assessment and risk management approach) proposed by the WHO be implemented in order to ensure the short term and long term health of the students of the University of Port Harcout.
During the past four decades from 1960 to 2000, Amargos, a small coastal community in Southern Chile, has experienced major structural transformations due to changing population size, development patterns, economic conditions and social characteristics. These social, economic and environmental changes altered the Amargos hazard landscape in profound ways, with more people living in high risk areas than ever before. Despite the series of changes, the community has demonstrated a profound capacity to adjust. Arguably, community leaders and planners worldwide can no longer underestimate or deny risk, as this impacts negatively on risk management. Ensuring livelihood security is an integral part of a sustainable approach to disaster mitigation. This book provides anchor for suggested guidelines and planning interventions for natural hazard planning. It emphasizes a developmental approach to risk management together with community participation in project planning and implementation, suitable for urban managers, planners, local government policymakers and disaster management professionals.
